Ochocinco ditches clothes in PETA ad

Published Nov. 24, 2010 12:00 a.m. ET

Chad Ochocinco is baring it all — almost — in a new anti-fur ad for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

Wearing nothing but a carefully placed football, the outspoken Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver has his tattoos on full display as part of PETA's ''Ink, Not Mink'' campaign. The ad will debut Friday.

Ochocinco calls himself an avid animal lover. He's certainly comfortable with exposure, with his reality shows, frequent tweets and ''Dancing With the Stars'' appearance.

PETA says the football in the photo is made from synthetic material, not leather.
